Holy Crap Cranky Fitness is SEVEN Years Old Today!

Seven Years? How the hell did that happen?

I won't bore you with a lot of musings on blogging today.  It's April 15th and some of you might have more important things to attend to.

But I did just wanna say a big and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who shows up here--no matter how off-topic, trivial, or silly the content might be. You guys are the reason Cranky Fitness never quite dies off! Which is either a good thing or an incredible disservice to humanity. I think the jury is still out on that one.

I've wandered away for long periods, and yet when I come back, some of you are still here to give me another chance. Which totally makes me a happy and grateful crab.  Plus, Cranky Fitness commenters are world-renowned for their generosity, humor, patience, common sense, cleverness, and kick-ass attitudes.

Oh, and one more thing: we've got a new About Page, somewhat re-edited and updated. It now includes a few more photos and introduces a couple of regular blog contributors, Starving Bitch and Research Nancy. (I'm still fantasizing about forming some sort of partnership with a smart-ass social-media ninja who for some reason is willing to align themselves with the Cranky brand and take over the world with me for nothing other than speculative future income. Folks who thought they had time to help simply didn't! So if you inquired earlier and I lost your email, please nudge me.)

Anyway, happy tax day, and thanks again everyone!!!!!!

  8. Happy (but still Cranky) Birthday! Remember that even if you don't eat the entire cupcake that has the candle, you can STILL lick the frosting off said candle :). So, maybe you use 7? Whatever you do to celebrate - just have fun!

  10. Another reason to be Canadian! My taxes aren't due until April 30th and since some internet virus broke the government computer (maybe we have more than one computer, but no more than 5 or 6) we have a 5 day extension on top of that. Yeeh Ha!
    Oh , I guess this whole anniversary thing is a big deal too. I mean it's no 10 extra days 'til taxes, but still a big deal. Congratulations!

    1. I don't need any more reason to envy Canadians Cindy, if it weren't for the weather I'd already live there. Enjoy your 10 more days of taxcrastination!

  17. Congrats, Crabby. If you're at 7 years, I can't be too far behind. You, Leah and Baggie are among those who first got me thinking of starting up. So I thank you for that and for 7 years (on and off) of entertaining posts. Wishing you many, many more.

  18. 7 years?! Ah, and I remember fondly when I first found you too. It just sucks you right in. :) Hummmmm, where should you travel next so I can live vicariously through your photo adventures?

  19. Yay, Cranky Birthday! This is the best blog ever and I'm happy to have found it. Here's to another fantastic 7+ years. Keep it up, Crabby! \o/

  20. Wow, thank you all SO MUCH!!! Wish I had time to answer the rest individually, but y'all know how much I love your guys and your supportive comments. Instead, I'm about to put up a post that actually has something to do with fitness for once!

  21. You certainly can't forget such a memorable day. Usually lots of freebies to score with tax day too, lol. Lucky 7 and here's to seven more! Happy dance! ~Deb
